Prognoses of Dermatoses of Pregnancy

Some reports have suggested an increased risk of fetal morbidity and mortality associated with maternal PG.[4] There appears to be an increased risk for premature births and infants who are small for gestational age, as compared with infants from normal pregnancies. Evidence of an increased rate of spontaneous abortions or fetal mortality has not been reported.[3] Careful management and follow-up of patients with PG are warranted. The incidence of fetal morbidity and mortality for the other dermatoses of pregnancy appears to be similar to that for normal pregnancies.[2]
